Cold Hands Warm Heart Blog Hop!!!


I'm super pumped to show you this latest release! Cold Hands Warm Heart is packed full of winter themed stamps and dies. There is definitely something for everyone. There are stitched stamps and dies, fabulous stencils and even 7 new ink pads!!

I've used the Stitched Shape stamps and Outline Shapes dies with the new Hydrangea ink to get my colorful card started. I couldn't help but pull out my Falling Snow stencil from last year to complete my background.


I filled my little tree up with the new gorgeous Crystal Reflections Sequins! The snow banks were cut using the Stitched Slopes and Hills dies. These are unique as they are separate die borders and stitched borders that you can use many different ways. I also used the Village dies with bright card stocks to go with my bright sequins. 


I've shot a video of my card process, plus a tip on using the Stitched Slopes and Hills dies.


My next card uses some of my favorite neutrals.I stared off by die cutting a Fog panel by using the Bundle of Stitches dies. I cut Neenah card stock using the Ring Frame die. I used the frame again to cut out some pattern papers, and assemble them onto my card with foam squares. 


I stamped my tree with the Stitched Shapes stamps using the new Sparrow ink (The loveliest brown EVER).. and used the coordinating Outline Shapes die.


My Merry Christmas message is from the Build a Snowman stamp set, it fit perfect in the circle. I finished my card off by adding a twine bow, some pearls and a star die cut from the Bundle of Stitches dies.
